Procedure

The north2north institutional contacts inform the students of their own institutions about the north2north application process in Norway.

The students who intend to apply for a north2north scholarship have to get in touch with the north2north contact at their home institutions before the 15th February.

The north2north institutional contact selects the students who are eligible to submit a north2north application.

They inform the students about the following:

  • Students must prepare a motivation letter that they should include with the application. The motivation letter should be anonymous and contain neither student names nor the name of their home institution.
  • Students will receive a student ID number that will be required for the application. The link to the application form will be sent directly to the student applicant by e-mail on 20 February. It is important to inform the students to check their spam box in case the link to the application is sent there.
  • Outgoing students from Norwegian institutions will be able to select a maximum of three institutions of their choice.
  • Students from north2north institutions in USA, Canada and Russia will be able to list two institutions/campuses in Norway. In the case of institutions with several campuses such as Nord or UiT The Arctic University of Norway, students must select the campus at which they wish to study.
  • Due to the fact that the north2north allocation is made by campus to ensure equal levels of activity at all campuses, an incoming student who is allocated a grant from Norway will only be able to use this grant at the campus for which the allocation has been made.

The north2north institutional contact of each institution with potential applicants fill in the “north2north potential applicant list”  and submit it to the Norwegian north2north National Agency, isabelle.guissard@uit.no by 19 February at the latest.

The Norwegian National Agency for north2north returns the lists to the north2north institutional contacts with an ID number assigned to each student on 20 February.

The north2north institutional contacts forward the ID number to each student and inform him or her that the deadline to submit the application form will be on 25 February.

After the 25 February, the Norwegian National Agency for north2north forwards the applications to the Norwegian north2north institutional contacts who make their outgoing and incoming priorities. The Norwegian institutional coordinators submit their priority list to the Norwegian National Agency for north2north by 12 March at the latest.

The Norwegian National Agency for north2north allocates the waivers and the grants and communicate the results of the Norwegian allocation to the north2north institutional contacts on 20 March. It is each student’s responsibility to contact the north2north institutional contact of his/her home institution to ask if he/she is allocated a north2north grant.
